Pepperl+Fuchs with new ultrasonic sensor
Pepperl+Fuchs is expanding its factory automation portfolio and has acquired the USi safety ultrasonic sensor from Mayser GmbH & Co. KG, a renowned supplier of products and system solutions, many of which are relevant to safety engineering. This ultrasonic sensor has a safety certification in accordance with EN ISO 13849 category 3 PL d.
The USi, a 2-channel ultrasonic sensor, features two transducers connected to a control interface. On each of the two independent channels, objects can be detected via an elliptical sound beam within ranges of up to 2500 mm. Two safe OSSD outputs are provided for signal output. After the launch in the first quarter of 2021, the USi will be added to the existing Pepperl+Fuchs safety portfolio, which includes inductive safety sensors, photoelectric sensors and light grids, safe positioning systems, safety-related AS-Interface components, and many different explosion-protected interface modules.
